Testimonial for Michi Arguedas

I truly cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Michi and about Michi as a person. Michi helped me and my family with post-partum support.

I was connected to Michi through a past post-partum client.  I was going through the rough early newborn days with a baby who had a tough case of reflux and everyone was functioning on very little sleep.  Not to mention an older child who was having a difficult time adjusting to having to share her parent's attention.  When I asked my friend, what's the difference between hiring a post-partum doula and a babysitter?  My friend wisely replied - "A doula is a baby expert".

And Michi is DEFINTELY a baby expert!  She's also a baby whisperer and an INCREDIBLE new-parent supporter. Friends and family members want to help, but they don't always know HOW to help in the most impactful way.  Michi intuitively knew and confidently stepped in when she saw a need and provided support in a way that I could not have articulated clearly until after the fact.  Michi is smart and intelligent, kind and gentle - to both babies and adults.

She arrived when our baby girl was just 8 weeks old, we were sort of flailing and in survival mode.  Once Michi walked into our lives, our entire household gained a sense of calm that it had been desprately looking for.  She helped us learn to read our baby's cues better (as a second time parent I thought I'd know how to do it again - and I STILL had so much to learn from Michi!).  She got our baby on a better sleep cycle and awake routine.  Until Michi arrived it felt like the baby was always grumpy and nursing non-stop and I was constantly in a state of panic.  With Michi's help I slowly felt myself returning back to myself and was more able to enjoy time with my older child, my family,  as well as enjoy my baby more now that she was truly rested.

Michi is now a part of our family.
